employer asking for job description and personel information in a two sided essay to be published and given out to the public - sort of a who you are and what you do along with a who you are and where you came from.
When I say asking - it is told by email rather than a volunteer basis.
Not happy with this, as personel info not wanting to share.
There are eight of us that do the same job and I have been told we will all be told to do this.
Have you explained to your line manager that you are not happy to have information about yourself available to the public? It sounds as though they are doing this exercise for well-meaning reasons and rightly or wrongly, it probably hasn't occurred to them that anyone will object.
I would suggest you speak to your manager about your concerns, and perhaps come up with a compromise of what kind of thing you would be happy with the public seeing.
